I do believe that in the early 70s the piano wasn't the easiest of instruments to both keep in tune and then to mike properly. Generally the piano was used as a rythem fill type of instrument . It was not meant to take the lead especially in this band like Elton, Billy Joel, Dr. John whose pianos were miked very differently as a lead instument.
As a side note if you notice on the WOS set up the side speakers are called piano fills so Jerry and whom ever had the other one could gage what was going on w/ Keith.
